Brimson backing Sexton to shine

AJ Brimson is backing his young halves partner to be a star of the future.

Ten games into his career at the Gold Coast Titans, the 21-year-old has taken the No. 7 duties like a duck to water and learning plenty as his first full season as the club's chief playmaker, his partner-in-crime has really been impressed with the youngster's level of maturity.

"I think he's going to be a really big player of the future to be honest... he's only about 10 games into his career," Brimson said on Triple M's Rush Hour with Leisel, Liam and Dobbo.

"He's got an old head on young shoulders and he's a good player.

"Unfortunately, we just haven't been getting the wins wins at the moment, so there's a bit of pressure on us, but we're looking forward to bouncing back against the Cows."

The Titans steal the win!

Five games in as the Gold Coast's newest five-eighth, the former fullback has enjoyed his switch of position, taking him back to his days as a junior.

"I grew up playing in the halves and I haven't been minding it," Brimson said.

"It's just a few more tackles at the moment, so for the first few rounds, my neck and shoulders have been quite sore.

"Other than that, I've been enjoying it."

Sitting two wins and four losses to start the year - with all four defeats by less than eight points - the 23-year-old can't quite put his finger on why the team is starting each contest slowly, but knows there is a great opportunity to turn it all around this Saturday.

"Unfortunately, we can't put our finger on one thing and we obviously were disappointed with how we started the season, but it's crazy," Brimson said.

"I think it's just little moments in games and at the moment, the comp is so tight where if you if you let little things in and have little moments where kind of slack off, you get you get bitten."
